For Christmas, I generally get a nice amount of gift cards. Definitely a nice amount. Today, I finally got to the mall to spend! Andrew and I went to Bayshore [which is the farthest mall, but my favourite. I live within 5 minutes of two malls, but Bayshore is worth the trip!]
For your viewing pleasure, I did a little fashion show of what I bought.
The first stop [after lunch] was Old Navy.
I need T-shirts sometimes, because I wear like 3 in a rotation. Mainly under sweatshirts, but still... I'm sure everyone knows about my yellow Beastie Boys hamburger T-shirt.
I like brown a lot, so it seemed like a good T-shirt colour as well. They were 2 for $15, so two T-shirts is a great choice! HAHA
This shirt is red. I wanted to buy pretty much the exact same shirt at American Apparel, but I actually didn't feel comfortable enough going in there by myself, because it's just not a Michael store. I'd feel judged. LOL This is the fatter looking picture of the two that I took of this shirt, but I accidentally deleted the other one. Pretend I'm thin.
This shirt is green. This is the only shade of green that I like and/or will wear.
Next, we went to Mrs. Tiggy Winkles, just because people friggin' love that store. I saw these before, but I finally decided to buy the mold to make shot glasses out of ice. I've got the water freezing right now, so I'll take a picture when they're done. I'm excited!
Bluenotes was up next, and I found these two lovely shirts:
I saw this shirt from across the room, and i thought *red? brown? what could go wrong?*
Then I saw this shirt close by, and I thought *brown? other brown? yes!*
So yes, I did buy three sets of two matching shirts, but honestly, I love them all very much. And they were good prices!
Andrew bought us some ice cream at Laura Secord, we chatted it up with his friend Kayla who was working her one shift a week at Mexx, he bought a nice black dress shirt that I picked out, and then we were off to West 49 for the second time, since I hadn't liked any of the clothes or shoes the first stop there.
I was there for a watch. I love Nixon watches. Love them. They're my favourite subcategory of my overall love for watches and clocks. Timepieces, really. Love them. Look how nice this watch is! ... I had two gift cards for the store, and like 4 bucks on a third one that I hadn't used in the past, and I had to add a considerable amount of my own money to buy it, but I love the watch. Yay!
We were finally done shopping, so of course that meant we stopped into the shoe store Spring.
These shoes are beautiful. They are very well fitted, and are much smaller and lighter than the skate shoes I normally wear. This was the whole theme of my day of shopping: to find clothes that fit me properly and aren't all baggy and stupid like most of the clothes I pretend i like but I absolutely hate. I like them a lot and they feel great. I've been wearing them all night just to break them in a bit.
As you can see, I bought no pants today. This annoyed me a little bit, but every pair of pants I tried on were too small even though they are the same size of the ones I was wearing. Even some from the same store. Pain in the ass. I was not buying BIGGER pants because I don't think I should have to, and since I plan on losing some weight, I don't feel that I should. Also, people notice if you are wearing the same shirts more than the same jeans.
It was a great shopping spree, and now I'm exhausted.
One last thing. My roommate is gone for the weekend on a ski trip. I generally don't go in the living room, so it is usually messy, but I'd normally not care. Well tonight, I decided to watch some TV in the living room. He left it a bit messy, but it seemed fine. Then, I go over and sit on a chair, and between the chair and the couch, hidden out of view from anywhere in the apartment that I would normally be, I found this:
